Samsung i780 review: Mouse included


The Samsung "i" line of smartphones have taken quite a lot of different shapes and seen OS implementations ranging from Symbian to Windows Standard and Pro. There are, however, five birds of a feather that do stand out with...

Unique dual mode touchpad navigation ; Built-in GPS with A-GPS support ; Large 2.55" 320x320 pixels TFT touchscreen display ; Good preloaded content ; Innovative home screen plug-in ; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP ; HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps ; Fast Marvell PXA3xx...

Review: Samsung SGH-i780


Samsung's SGH-i780 is unusual for a few reasons. It is a Windows Mobile 6 Professional device with a 320x320 pixel touchscreen that sports the BlackBerry style form factor, and it uses an optical mouse for navigation. Jin tests it out in this review.

when in camera mode use the volume side buttons to switch between the front and back cameras. I too got too frustrated with it. There should have been an option in the software.
